Tony Khan Wants To Continue To Diversify AEW's Roster

Khan received criticism about a perceived lack of diversity after Big Swole’s release

In the wake of Big Swole leaving AEW and making comments about a lack of diversity in the company, it created a debate about the nature of representation in AEW and pro wrestling as a whole.

Whilst AEW does feature many wrestlers of different ethnicities, there is always room for improvement, and AEW President Tony Khan has addressed this, mentioning to Sporting News the steps AEW are taking to support diversity in wrestling:

“Anthony Bowens, of course, was just here promoting on behalf of GLAAD and AEW. In the LGBTQ community, we have great representation including Nyla Rose, a former women's world champion, the first transgender world champion in wrestling ever and a great representation. Of course, diversifying the roster is very important. We saw that on Dynamite when we added great free agents including Keith Lee and AQA. I plan to continue to diversify and expand the roster and I'm very excited about what we're doing. Jake Atlas, another great debut who really serves the community and is a great person. I'm sorry he had the injury on Rampage against Adam Cole, but I'm really excited about him and am going to take care of him while he's out. I'm a big fan of Jake Atlas too,” said Khan.
